Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has said that there is no chance of him now becoming the manager of any other Premiership club, and that he wants to remain at Anfield long term.
This all comes on the heels of speculation surrounding Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini, should he part company with the Premiership champions.
Rodgers current contract with the Merseyside club runs until 2018, and when asked about his future the Northern Irishman said: “I’ve signed a deal here, and I want to be here to see that through.
“Then I hope I’ll have earned enough time to warrant another deal, to keep growing and building here.
“Where do you go from Liverpool, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world?
“I chose to come to Liverpool because I hoped I could be here for many years.”
Rodgers goes on to say that he is excited about what he is trying to build at Liverpool.
“I find I am developing into the very best I can be and we are working into an exciting phase after this season,” he said.
“If we get young players tied to contracts, I hope that will allow us to win trophies with this way of working.”
The Reds could book themselves a place in the FA Cup semi-finals if they can overcome Blackburn on Sunday, with Rodgers knowing that if he wants to stay at Liverpool he must win trophies.
“I really wanted to be here, follow some incredible managers with a support that is unrivalled, and to have success while knowing I was young enough to create and build something,” he added.
“That is why I came here. I know I need to justify that by working well and winning trophies. I hope that is the next step.
“When you come here, that is what you are judged on. It is something (win trophies) I want to do for all the supporters and people here.”
